There are nine ways to win money during Powerball. Getting a Powerball without any other numbers pays $4, and even more if the Powerplay is purchased for an additional dollar. The same payout goes to a ball and a Powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the Powerball, or three correct numbers and no Powerball.
If all five white, numbered balls are chosen, but the red Powerball is not correct, the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the Powerplay is chosen.
The other multi-state lottery is Mega Millions, which is played on Tuesdays and Fridays. Like the Powerball, the jackpot is reset to $20 million after winning the jackpot, and a row of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply your winnings with a Megaplier.
